    Wow, I am impressed.. I thought he did a pretty good job with the dance moves (MJ will always be the best but he did pretty good).. the crying bit seemed a bit scripted though? Still great performance :)

    I think the guy was just overwhelmed to be back on stage and getting a warm reception. Plus he idolized Michael and was torn up over not getting to do a tribute last year. The tears being scripted is too brilliant a PR move. Nothing I’ve seen from him the past couple years shows he has even a competent PR team.

    MJ was his idol and MJ loved Chris even when died. So the world to denied him of this tribute last year. So I think he just wear his heart on his sleeve and left it all on that stage. I was beyond impressed. He’s a great performer. Say whatever you want about him but you can never deny his talent. I salute him for that.

    Scripted? Sorry but Chris isn’t that good of an actor. This was amazing. He finally got a real chance to show his idol love and respect. If people actually listened to the words of Man in the Mirror maybe they would understand. Chris was a kid only 19 when all of this happened. Forgive him. He is trying to better his life. He really is making a change. Great comeback Chris. We’ve missed you.

    I don’t like Chris Brown much -he’s kind of a douche- but the guy has talent. He can sing well and he can dance well and he did a killer MJ tribute.

    OMG> That was not a PR! No grown man in the hip-hop business is going to CRY on national tv. He clearly broke down. He knows he did wrong. Everyone deserves a second chance. no one forgets what he did, but that doesn’t mean he should live the rest of his life having to prove himself. He did a great job, and i still love him. No matter what you cant deny his talent. R.I.P. michael. “I just wanna say one thing,’ he concluded. “I let y’all down before but I won’t do it again, I promise. I love y’all, good night.” I believe him!

    Charlie sheen got a comeback in two seconds, all is forgotten because he has a hit show, but Chris nope, for some reason he must remain a pariah for the rest of his life

    SELF INDULGENT WHEN HE “CRIED”
    HE IS A GREAT DANCER AND PERFORMER, NO DOUBT BUT WHY DOES THE PUBLIC FORGET WHEN THESE PEOPLE COMMIT HORRIBLE CRIMES?
    HE CAN ENTERTAIN BUT SO DID O.J.
    DID HE CRY BECAUSE HE TRULY WAS OVERWHELMED WITH EMOTION REMEMBERING HE DIDNT LISTEN TO THE LYRICS IN HIS PERSONAL LIFE ABOUT RESPECTING AND LOVING OTHERS OR WAS IT A GREAT P.R. STUNT?
    I SAY THE LATTER….PATHETIC….

    I think it was sincere. He was a young kid with Rihanna, he admitted he’s wrong and got help. Let’s move on.
